I finished my first batch of cookies! I used NFSC and Rolled Buttercream with Royal Icing details. I wish I could test one, but I used every last speck of dough to make these 30 cookies!
You guys probably know about this but I used regular press and seal sandwich bags and just cut off the zip top, then tied them with a bow. The Wilton treat bags I had were too small and I didn't want to spend $5 on the bigger size. The sandwich bags were perfect! I'm so proud of my thriftiness icon_cool.gif

They look really good for your 1st cookies, wish mine looked that good! I like the idea of the sandwhich bags too as I don't have a huge selection of bags and I have to order them from the US so this is a handy tip and thank you!

I think you'll find the flip and close tops are going to be cheaper than the ziplock tops. You can cut where the top is folded down, and it makes the bag that much bigger. And your cookies are adorable!
